(English) Bayahmad Yurdu village
This village is situated at a distance of 10 km from the centre and is regarded as one of the most beautiful and picturesque mountain villages in Khizi. Locals explain the name of the village by the fact that the territory was the personal property of Ahmad bay before the revolution. In fact, Bayahmad Yurdu is a place name related to a tribe. Representatives of the Seljuk tribe of Ahmadli came to Absheron in the 11th century and settled in the Khizi-Barmak region. Bayahmad Yurdu is listed as an abandoned village. Its story is a little bit different. The village was bustling with life before the Great Patriotic War (1941-45). As the war broke out, 36 people went to the war from here. In the four years of the war, about 400 people died of hunger here. People who could not withstand the famine during the war started moving to the capital. Most of the population in Baku’s Papanin settlement are residents of Bayahmad Yurdu who left the village during the Second World War. In general, Khizi-Barmak mountain people who started to migrate to Absheron in the second half of the 19th century merged kindred families in Baku villages and set up their own districts. Residents of the district of mountain people, who maintained their traditions, settled in the upper part of the city.
